What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Reddam Racing's Irap continues to progress well at his Del Mar summer base as he bids for his third straight graded stakes win in the Grade 1 Travers, trainer Doug O'Neill said by phone Thursday morning. Read More
Let's see how good this big mare is....
This Saturday will mark the 50th anniversary of the incredible Travers run by Damascus.Read More
  • Andy Scoggin via Disqus · They don't make them like Damascus anymore! · 9 hours ago
  • Fan of Damascus via Disqus · Hi What a great era for horse racing. Three-year-olds Damascus, Dr. Fager, In Reality; Buckpasser dominating the older male category. Not only were the horses great, they raced often and it was not uncommon for Aqueduct to draw 50,000 for a Saturday stakes race (not a card loaded with six or seven stakes.) So much has changed - a great deal that is not for the better. greg (Fan of Damascus) · 9 hours ago
“You’ve got to put him in the race,” said his trainer, Bob Baffert. “He can’t run here like he did in Dubai. He came back last time with one eye shut, full of dirt. The kickback was strong, and he lost all interest.” The kickback was strong and it can clearly be seen that Mike Smith and Arrogate were getting absolutely pelted with the kickback. I think that may be a pretty accurate take on what happened in the SD but I don't think that it completely explains Arrogate's very poor run. Even if Arrogate doesn't break all that well Saturday he should still have no problem sitting 3rd outside Collected and Accelerate since there will a much longer run into the first turn. Hoping Arrogate can rebound and put on a show Saturday.
No way this is true. Whoever put this up is saying arrogate had a kid when he was 2? Lol

Remove Dream It Is please she is injured
I see he's Not going in the Juddmonte now. Nor is Enable.
Well, over at the entry for Shaman Ghost, it appears he is now out of the Woodward due to throat surgery. GR's job just got a little easier. And in the case of the JCGC, maybe Keen Ice's as well.
Entered on Sunday Race 9 Del Mar for Baffert and Magnier
Coolmore made a video of American Pharoah, Air Force Blue and Vancover Shuttling to Australia. Shows AP at Ashford, the airport and loose in his paddock in Australia. https://www.facebook.com/CoolmoreStud/
Trainer Doug O’Neill made his way to the winner’s circle following Lava Man’s 2 ½ length victory as the even money favorite in the $1 million TVG Pacific Classic in 2006, but hasn’t made it back there with four starters since in Del Mar’s signature event.Read More
  • Candy Chitty via Disqus · I'm distressed because although I've read online that the race Saturday will be televised at 8pm ET on NBC, I find nothing on the schedules I look up but a car race!! I live on the East Coast. So does that mean that the race will not be televised? Anyone know? · 4 hours ago
Wow small field but this race is loaded!
BH is reporting that Shaman Ghost is out of the Woodward because of necessary surgery for a throat problem. The description given sounds like an intermittent dorsal displacement or entrapment of the epiglottis. https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/223158/throat-surgery-forces-shaman-ghost-to-skip-woodward#disqus_thread I'll try to find the exact specific dx. from additional write-ups.
Was bred to Deep Impact.
Was sold last fall. Anybody know who she was bred to?
Nominations close at midnight. Look for a post on some nominees either tomorrow or Saturday.
I'm going with Ten City for this race.
I understand this horse hasn't won a two turn race yet...I do. Part of it to me though is Rosario can't seem to give him a good trip over and over again(except at Churchill). Even in the Dwyer he gave him a bad trip and PJ still won. This horse should be running in the Travers. I still think this horse is in the top 5 at worst for 3 year olds.
lets hope it was that moment an animal just dosnt turn up and things are back to normal come race day ,
